SLSP is a yearly conference series aimed at promoting and displaying excellent research on the wide spectrum of statistical methods that are currently in use in computational language or speech processing. It aims at attracting contributions from both fields. Though there exist large, well-known conferences and workshops hosting contributions to any of these areas, SLSP is a more focused meeting where synergies between subdomains and people will hopefully happen. In SLSP 2017, significant room will be reserved to young scholars at the beginning of their career and particular focus will be put on methodology.

The conference invites submissions discussing the employment of statistical models (including machine learning) within language and speech processing. Topics of either theoretical or applied interest include, but are not limited to:

  • anaphora and coreference resolution
  • authorship identification, plagiarism and spam filtering
  • computer-aided translation
  • corpora and language resources
  • data mining and semantic web
  • information extraction
  • information retrieval
  • knowledge representation and ontologies
  • lexicons and dictionaries
  • machine translation
  • multimodal technologies
  • natural language understanding
  • neural representation of speech and language
  • opinion mining and sentiment analysis
  • parsing
  • part-of-speech tagging
  • question-answering systems
  • semantic role labelling
  • speaker identification and verification
  • speech and language generation
  • speech recognition
  • speech synthesis
  • speech transcription
  • spelling correction
  • spoken dialogue systems
  • term extraction
  • text categorisation
  • text summarisation
  • user modeling
